Monochromatic

Cardigan-Vintage
Oversized Shirt- Urban Outfitters (sale)
Thick Knit Leggings - Roxy (bought at Marshalls)
Stripe Twist Scarf - American Apparel
Riding Boots - Bakers
Systematic, hydromatic, ultramatic, why it could be greased lightning! Does anyone else get that song stuck in their head when they see the word monochromatic? I ALWAYS do, and now I bet you it's stuck in your head too :D

Today I'm back with another fashion post and here to show you how easy it is to throw together an outfit quickly when you have no time and look extremely put together.

If you follow me on lookbook, you'll have already seen a few of these pictures. I post my outfits there first as I don't have time to write a whole blog post on them haha.

So you can definitely see my hair in these pictures, which is my natural unruly hair, and magically once I put on this hair scarf (which has a wire in it so you just twist it and it stays) and POOF it looks good! (which my hair never looks good leaving it alone) Plus it is out of your face (and mouth if it's windy). I strongly recommend one, especially since it's so versatile, I've even had my hair up in a bun and wrapped this around it and it looks more fashionable :)

Everyone has some kind of cardigan (by the way does ANYONE know where I can find another cardigan that looks like this, I bought it at a vintage store probably four years ago and is my most worn item in my whole closet) that they can throw on over an oversized tee, and some leggings so you're extra comfy. 

If you pair riding boots (or any tall boots you have) and a longer shirt, It kind of hides the fact that you aren't wearing real pants, and looks more acceptable than wearing short boots (although sometimes I do love short boots and leggings (you'll see that in upcoming fashion posts).

And if you're really short on time for your makeup, do your foundation, a bit of blush, your eyebrows, mascara and a dark lip and you automatically look super pulled together and is like the cherry on top of the sundae. (That's all I did here) I'm wearing MAC Viva Glam I which was sent to me by the fabulous Dave Lackie (click on his nam and it will take you to his twitter where he does the most amazing giveaways EVER), who is the editor of an amazing online magazine called Beauty the Guide. The latest edition is AMAZING. It has all the information about the upcoming spring trends and so much more and is so beautifully put together I still can't believe it's free. I genuinely adore the magazine, I even showed it to my friend who is Canadian and was like "omg it's like a legit magazine! I want to read the whole thing cover to cover and every edition right now!" Is it just me that despises paying for magazines? They don't have magazines that come with cool freebies outside the UK. But thank god there is finally an amazing beauty magazine that is free and online. Hey, eco-friendly. Go Beauty the Guide!

Anyways I hope you gained something from reading this post. I think it is a simple outfit, but looks pulled together. These are basic staples that most people have in their wardrobe even in varying colors (I'm just a fan of wearing neutrals as a personal preference) and I think ANYONE can wear this. 

(on a side note I currently have a teapigs giveaway running! It is international and you can find it here. I really hope you guys enter because I love you all so much and really want to thank you all for following and supporting me)

Hope you enjoyed my post! I'm getting back into fashion posting and I really like it :) Except for the fact that it is soooo cold and windy outside when I take these (I had to delete so many pictures where the wind blew my hair across my face). And please if anyone knows where to find these oversized chunky knit "grandpa cardigans" as I call them please let me know! I adore them so much I want one in every color.
